What difference does it make?
Servers consume a huge amount of energy but Ecosia run its servers with renewable energy from solar farms they build and also plant trees in some of the world's harshest environments. Every 2.5 searches with them, instead of Google, removes 1kg of CO2.
What do you need?
- A phone or tablet or computer
Step by step
Install the Ecosia app on your phone and make it your default browser (after you've installed and opened the app, it will walk you through how to do this in your phone's settings). If you usually browse on a computer, visit ecosia and follow the steps there to make it your default browser. Take a screen grab of the browser once it's installed or, even better, a photo of one of your family using it.
Search for your weird and wonderful fact! What will you look up? Unusual teams? Unusual pitches? Marvellous mascots? Strange stats? Pitch invasions? The world of football is your oyster! And with every search, you're getting closer to planting a tree (on average, Ecosia reports that every 45 searches plants a tree).
When you find something suitably mind-blowing, take a screen grab of your fact and make sure you also upload a picture of you setting Ecosia as your default browser.
